The look that says: Forget the flypast... I only have eyes for you
MORE STUNNING ROYAL PICTURES INSIDE
AS AN actress, Meghan Markle would be well aware of the old dictum about never working with children or animals.
So she’s unlikely to have been surprised yesterday when the queen’s great-grandchildren stole the show as they giggled and danced their way through Trooping the Colour.
Just a fortnight after her wedding, the new Duchess of Sussex made her debut on the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside the rest of the Royal Family to celebrate the queen’s official birthday.
There were smiles all round as Harry and Meghan, in a blush-pink off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera and matching Philip Treacy hat, showed off their wedding bands to Prince Charles, while the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge shared a joke.
However, it was the youngest Royals – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Savannah Phillips, the daughter of Princess Anne’s son Peter – who grabbed the limelight.
They clapped and cheered as wave upon wave of aircraft took part in the flypast, greeting the Red Arrows’ tricolour smoke trails with squeals of delight.
Prince Philip, who turns 97 today, did not attend the celebrations. He officially retired from Royal duties last year.
